Do you suffer from IBS symptoms such as bloating, diarrhoea,Chronic fatigue, headaches or migraines , skin problems, joint pains, aching muscles and weakness to name a few……

Food intolerance may be the trigger.
It has long been known that the consumption of certain foods can have profound effects on the physical and mental health of susceptible individuals. This is even more evident in today’s world with the huge variety of processed foods we now consume.

What is a food intolerance reaction?
Not to be confused with food allery (which involves the immune system ), a food intolerance reaction occurs when an individual’s threshold to certain food compounds or chemicals is exceeded. Symptoms can occur hours – even days – after eating the offending food. Therefore it can be very difficult to pin point which foods could be causing the symptoms. Food intolerance is associated with a wide range of unpleasant symptoms and many chronic conditions.

Less than 2% of the population suffers from food allergies; however around 45% of the population is estimated to suffer from some form of food intolerance.

A range of testing is available from an inhouse test covering 59 foods to a complete lab service which offers a more comprehensive service.
In house testing will return results on the same day. Samples sent to lab for testing will take around 10 days.

A simple finger pin prick is performed for all of the intolerance tests.

The test I use is a food detective test that covers 59 of the most popular foods. You will receive your  results the same day along with a dietary support guide booklet.

The food detective offers a way to kick start the process of improving your Gut, by showing up those foods to which our body has developed a high level of IgG anitbodies. 

Taking the stress away with a food intolerance test can enable you to make the necessary changes to your diet and get back to a healthier, happier you. You’ll regain control of your diet and know exactly what you should avoid so you can keep those annoying symptoms at bay. 

Food intolerance testing has been pushed into the mainstream recently. And with so many people throughout the UK suffering from chronic diseases and more research than ever looking into the effect of the diet on health, it’s no wonder. We’ve become more knowledgeable about food intolerances and sensitivities in recent years, and testing for them has come a long way. Why? Because these intolerances can have a marked impact on our health and wellbeing.

There are several ways that a food intolerance can impact our health, and it’s important that we stay on top of our own health and wellness. 

  1. Digestive health  Food intolerances are when our body struggles to properly digest a certain food item.
  2. Chronic Inflammation – But most don’t realise that consuming foods that you are intolerant or sensitive to could also cause inflammation.
